I just posted this in another board before seeing this one:

Hi everyone,

I have a question for you ladies. I knew I was going to get my period this morning and I meant to stop at CVS after my dinner date with some friends but I completely forgot. I went this morning and bought the BBT and the Clearblue fertility monitor sticks. I know you're supposed to take your temp as soon as you wake up and use your first urine of the day. I just took my temperature now and was going to use a test stick but did I screw myself up?

Also, do you guys recommend using the sticks twice a day?

And considering I just noticed that I have the test sticks but not the actual monitor (I thought the sticks were the monitor, like a pregnancy test). If I go buy it at lunch is it too late?

Your temperature shifts quickly after you wake up and move around. Resting temps only. I'm sure it's not all screwed up now, though.

Most ladies here seem to use them twice a day. I never got a positive on one. I'd get almost positive and missed it. lol Good luck!

take your temp the second you wake up. before you get out of bed to pee or brush teeth. you can do it orally or vaginally. as for the OPKs, i always took mine 2-3 times/day the closer i got to my most fertile day. I would do one in AM, one at around 12/1PM. I do suggest using at least 2 OPKs a day, so you are less likely to miss your surge.

Also, a great place to buy OPKS is on amazon. Look for the LH wondfos. you can get a bunch for MUCH cheaper than buying in a store.
